Hi I am Cathy from Ft Wayne IN. I have been doing counted cross stitch since the late 1980's. I have been participating in WIPocalypse since 2012. I am attracted to full coverage pieces. I am not the fastest stitcher but do keep plugging. I do like finishes so I try to keep some smaller pieces in my WIP pile. I am currently not doing a rotation.
The projects I will be working on for 2018 are listed on the WIPocalypse 2018 tab.
My goals for 2018 are to:
1) Finish Summer Sensation. I am really close on this one. A few more leaves to stitch and alot of back stitching and it will be done. I do stitch on this one almost every night for at least an hour.
2) I have joined the Full Coverage Facebook group and their challenge of doing 1200 stitches a month. I am doing this on Little Fairies at Play. I have never counted my daily stitches before. Progress always looks slim. I figured I needed 40 stitches a day which didn't seem bad as long as I stitch on this one every day. Well life happens and I do not get to it every day. But I have had some long stitching sessions on it this year and I am halfway to 1200 stitches for the month of January. I hope to keep this up all year so I can see some real progress on this one.
3)While digging thru my stash I found some cute small owls to stitch. I am going to try stitching one for each family group and make them into ornaments for Christmas 2018.
4) Once Summer Sensation is done I will focus on Faces of Faery 90 and hope to get that one completed or close to done by the end of the year.
